“What’s really amazing about being you is that it’s about making decisions that are the best for you and for the people around you. To make you happy and to make them happy.
Every decision has advantages and disadvantages and it really defines what you are when you make that decision because you choose and when you choose you define yourself.
My parents made it for me so I could live by myself and to be really independent. That has some disadvantages because sometimes you think you can achieve everything by yourself and you don’t need anyone else. That the only thing you need is perseverance and motivation but at some point you realise you need other people around you to make you feel happy.
Because if you can’t share your happiness, what is it worth?”
